Peru, Indiana – Members and guests of the Ole Olsen Memorial Theatre in Peru gathered together Saturday, May 19th for their Annual Hall of Fame Banquet at the historic Depot on West Canal Street.

This year’s inductees into the Hall of Fame were Pat and Ellen Harvey. Both Pat and Ellen have been involved with Ole Olsen since the 1970’s. They have acted, directed, worked backstage and served in various other capacities over the years and are most deserving of this honor.
